    COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus. Although shale-oil plays with oil stored in open-fractured shale have been pursued for more than 99yr, organic-rich and low-permeability shales and hybrid shale-oil systems are now being pursued based on knowledge and technologies gained from production of shale-gas resource systems and likely hold the largest untapped oil resource potential.

      The latest investment is Sinopec's acquisition of 50% of Chesapeake Energy Corp.'s Mississippi shale oil and gas properties in northern Oklahoma. Nevertheless, because of vast geological differences, the shale gas development model applied in the US cannot be fully adopted in the Chinese context (Hu and Xu, ).   shale oil recovery rates are developed by matching a shale formation’s geophysical characteristics to U.S. shale oil analogs. The resulting estimate is referred to as both the risked oil and natural gas in-place and the technically recoverable resource. The specific tasks carried out to implement the assessment include.

      For international and national investors, the prediction at this month’s Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit that it could take as much as US$ billion in new infrastructure spending over the next seven years to meet rising shale gas output and address current limitations might be cause for concern.. At a time of rising prices and potential long-awaited profitability to the US shale. 1b.3 An array of new oils—oil sands, tight oil, new heavy oils, deepwater oil, and eventually oil shale—are projected to fill the gap, as demand for liquid fuels continues to rise. The plateau in conventional oil and the corresponding increase in the demand for liquid fuels have motivated markets to respond with higher oil prices.

Get this from a library. Institutional constraints and the potential for oil shale development. [W J Ramsey; I Y Borg; R L Thornton; Lawrence Livermore Laboratory.]. The institutional constraints. Potential institutional constraints to unconventional gas production in Vietnam take a number of forms, across the petroleum sector as a whole, within central government, within the industry, between central and local government and at local community : Luu Hoang Ha.

Oil shale gains attention as a potential abundant source of oil whenever the price of crude oil rises. At the same time, oil-shale mining and processing raise a number of environmental concerns Author: Abdelrahman Ahmed.

Utilizing expertise from a range of contributors in academia, non-governmental organizations, and the oil and gas industry, Environmental and Health Issues in Unconventional Oil and Gas Development is an essential resource for academics and professionals in the oil and gas, environmental, and health and safety industries as well as for policy.

Potential shale gas bearing areas are also areas that could experience severe water stress by (Batra, ). Existing water supply constraints mean that not all possible shale gas deposits can be explored, limiting the potential benefit that gas extraction has to offer (EMIS, ).

Environmental and Health Issues in Unconventional Oil and Gas Development offers a series of authoritative perspectives from varied viewpoints Institutional constraints and potential for oil shale development book key issues relevant in the use of directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing, providing a timely presentation of requisite information on the implications of these technologies for those connected to unconventional oil and shale gas development.

Scenarios for potential shale gas development were modelled for the Baltic Basin in Northern Poland for the period – using the land allocation model EUCS The book includes the history of shale gas development, the technology used to economically recover hydrocarbons, and descriptions of the ten primary shale gas resources of the United States.

International shale resources, environmental concerns, and policy issues are also addressed. Unlike many of its shale peers, EOG Resources has been drilling for returns and not merely shooting just for high oil and gas volumes.

The company has set a. The Fossil Fuel Revolution: Shale Gas and Tight Oil describes the remarkable new energy resources being obtained from shale gas and tight oil through a combination of directional drilling and.

Constraints to Oil Shale Commercialization: Policy Options to Address These Constraints Introduction This chapter describes the requirements for establishing an oil shale industry bydiscusses potential constraints to its estab-lishment, and presents policy options to ad-dress them, The effects of oil shale develop.

Shale Oil and Gas Handbook: Theory, Technologies, and Challenges provides users with information on how shale oil and gas exploration has revolutionized today’s energy industry. As activity has boomed and job growth continues to increase, training in this area for new and experienced engineers is s: 1.

2, [8][9][10][11][12][13] In fact, extraction of bitumen from oil shale before retorting is recommended to get better oil quality and to reduce production of S and N gases. 2,14 Aboulkas et al [ The study deals mostly with economic and institutional constraints.

The cost of shale oil, estimated at about 50 percent above the current world oil price, is the principal barrier to commercialization of surface retorting. The most serious institutional problem is the availability of water in the semiarid shale regions of the United States.

Oil shale is present in the following basins: Uinta, Piceance Creek, Sandwash, Green River, Great Divide, Washakie, and Fossil (see Fig. Potential resources The oil-shale deposits in the United States occur through the span of a geological time from the Late Tertiary to the Ordovician or, even, to the Precambrian period.

This study analyzed the technological progress of the United States’ shale and tight petroleum (natural gas and crude oil) industry based on the association rules of its patents. According to the findings, although the production of shale oil and gas began inevidence of increasing technological developments in this industry assessed by patent applications began to appear only in Oil Shale Research in the United States _____ Profiles of Oil Shale Research and Development Activities In Universities, National Laboratories, and Public Agencies Prepared by INTEK, Inc.

The objectives are to review shale oil technologies as a means of supplying domestically produced fuels within environmental, social, economic, and legal/institutional constraints; using available data, analyses, and experienced judgment, to examine the major points of uncertainty regarding potential impacts of oil shale development; to resolve issues where data and analyses are compelling or.

Carbon dioxide emissions for different technologies will also be a concern for potential oil shale processing development as eminent constraints add risks to these opportunities.

The potential for carbon dioxide recycling and storage back into the reservoir was also explored, and it is shown that the CO 2 stored by reinjection is insignificant. Get this from a library.

Potential future role of oil shale: prospects and constraints. [United States. Interagency Task Force on Oil Shale.; United States. Federal Energy Administration.; United States. Department of the Interior.] -- This report of the Interagency Task Force on Oil Shale examines the prospects for expanding shale oil production to meet the objectives of Project Independence.

shale formation, we calibrated and modeled the field development and pre-tax economics for shale gas in Saudi Arabia in particular.

Results of our model indicate a delivered cost of shale gas. U.S. shale remains a top priority and the oil majors have stepped up their spending in shale, pivoting out of other regions.

Spending on non-OPEC non-shale .oil shale is its potential for the economic recovery of energy, including shale oil and combustible gas, as well as a number of byproducts. A deposit of oil shale having economic poten - tial is generally one that is at or near enough to the surface to be developed by open-pit or conventional underground mining or by in-situ methods.
